Microsoft rolls out an update for Visual Studio 2017 Release Candidate

Microsoft is rolling out an update to Visual Studio 2017 Release Candidate. The update brings with it several improvements, some new features and a list of fixes.

This update will bring Visual Studio 2017 RC to build 26127.00. Here is a summary of the major changes:

  • The .NET Core and ASP.NET Core workload is no longer in preview. We have fixed several bugs and improved usability of .NET Core and ASP.NET Core Tooling.
  • Team Explorer connect experience is now improved to make it easier to find the projects and repos to which you want to connect.
  • The Advanced Save option is back due to popular demand.
  • Multiple installation-related issues are now fixed in this update, including hangs. We’ve also added a retry button when installation fails, disambiguated Visual Studio installs in the Start menu, and added support for creating a layout for offline install.

For a full changelog, take a look at the release notes on the Visual Studio website.
